Holy Dormition Sisterhood
In 1998, with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Hilarion, the Holy Dormition Sisterhood (HDS) was established in St. Marys, Sydney, by Hieromonk Kosmas (Vasilopoulos) of the Orthodox Monastery of the Archangel Michael (OMAM). Although originally intended to become a monastic community, the sisterhood found its calling as a lay sisterhood, and gradually took upon itself the publishing work initiated by Father Kosmas. To this day, the sisterhood continues its publishing and missionary activities under the pastoral guidance of Father Kosmas, distributing approximately fifty booklets on the lives of the saints and various other topics.
